Important Mindfulness Traits

Attention: Our mind doesn't sit still, so cultivating attention can be hard work. The here and now is the only time we can see, hear, smell, taste, touch and communicate.  The key is to pay attention to present moment experiences, with openness, curiosity and a willingness to be with what is.
Mindfulness is being aware of what is happening in the present moment. Your silent observer is that part of you that is pure awareness, a perspective to observe self-as-context. This is a process, not a thing, an awareness of awareness itself.

Acceptance: I believe we all have the God-given grace for each season. No matter what circumstances we are in, we can make the choice to accept ourselves, appreciate the present moment, and enjoy our lives. 

Awake: The mindful way starts with mindful awareness and slowly progresses to being awake with mindfulness. If we are not completely awake, we can't really appreciate life to its fullest. Today is the only life you are sure of. Shake yourself awake.

Actions: Actions turn your goals and dreams into reality. Taking action is a sure way to get unstuck from a merry-go-round in life. Let go, forgive yourself, take actions based on your values, passions & purpose to move forward, moment by moment.
